Shee Yan Assam Fish @ Muar

I had a chance to revisit Muar to attend 1 of my friend’s brother wedding dinner. I know, what’s got to do with me when it’s his brother wedding right?

Anyway, I just treat this as a makan trip for me…hehe.

First dish that being served is the Deep Fried Dragon Tongue Fish. The fish is very thin hence not much meat on it. We just ate it with soy sauce. Not bad la. 6.0/10

Wanchai Seafood Street @ Zhuhai, China

Zhuhai is located in the Canton province of China, hence many restaurants here are serving Canton Cuisine (粤菜), one of the 4 major subdivisions cuisine in China.

Fresh live seafood is prominent in Canton cuisine, and according to them, fresh live seafood are best cooked with by steaming, with only little used of seasoning to bring out the natural sweetness of live seafood.

While most authentic Cantonese cuisine restaurants have live seafood tanks in their restaurants, Wanchai Seafood Street in Zhuhai bring it up to another level.

There are more than 10 restaurants serving authentic Cantonese cuisine here, and while all the restaurants here does not have live seafood tanks, behind these restaurants are a whole stretch of stalls selling all sorts of live seafood.

Walking past here is just like walking at Petaling Street in Malaysia where you are being shouted to asked you visit their shop, telling you that they are offering the cheapest price or even sell you are a price that they actually making a lost. It’s really a mess as since I visited this place during lunch where there are not much customers, we are the target of every stalls here.

However, it’s also a wonderful experience since many seafood sold here are not sold in almost every wet market in Malaysia. Most of them I don’t even know their name.

Breakfast Street Food @ Dannok

As lively as Dannok gets around 6PM till 8PM almost every night especially weekend, most of the time it’s a quiet town.

For breakfast, one will have a hard time trying to found a shop to eat in. However, if you don’t mind sitting by the road for your breakfast, then you will have plenty of option.

Quite a few stalls selling Koay Chap (粿汁), which is a bit different from what we normally get in Malaysia.  Koay Chap is a dish with a special type of noodle. The texture is also different and it’s doest taste a bit like koay teow, but not really so. They are not stingy with the ingredients at all which make it quite a filling bowl of noodle. 6.8/10

Little Mexican Cafe @ Langkawi

After our crazy Go-Kart at noon time, 4 of us are hungry like hell and so here we are, at Cenang trying to find something to eat.

After driving up and down, and even stopped at duty free shop to stock up for alcohol, we finally decide to have our lunch at a small cafe, named Little Mexican Cafe.

Only few tables available in this small cafe, and there are also 2 customers besides us when we were here.

However, although our order was taken quite fast, but the food really take ages to come. This plate of cheesy nachos take at least 30 minutes before it arrived our table when there is only well, 2 tables of customers?

Not to mentioned, it’s bad. 3.0/10

Luckily, the Chilli Chicken is really really good. I forget the exact name of it, but I like it a lot. I do wish it’s even more spicy though 😀 7.8/10

Orkid Ria Seafood Restaurant @ Langkawi

After checked in to the room, I and LY have a slight nap, before we were out to enjoy the infinity pool! Although the sun is so damned poison, but the pool is just great.

Anyway, after fooling around, we were out for dinner at Cenang Beach again. Choices of restaurant? Orkid Ria, one of the most visited restaurant by tourist from China.

It was around 7pm and it was already packed, and we were lucky that we don’t need to wait for our seat.

Sawadee Thai Seafood Restaurant @ Langkawi

After the 4 hours island hoping, both me and LY are sorta exhausted already. However, since both of us have a bad breakfast, we both agree that we should have something better before we check in our hotel.

Driving around Cenang beach, and Sawadee Thai Seafood Restaurant certainly caught my eye.

However, nobody bother to served us or acknowledge that we will be served soon when we are here. Only 1 waiter is taking orders, and no other waiter are to be seen. We sat for almost 10 minutes before someone finally come to us. I am still amazed on my patience, maybe I am too tired? Hmm….

Luckily, the food here is good. The Tom Yam fish here reminds me of my all time favourite Tom Yam at my home town, which already closed down few years back. I am happy that I can finally try something similar here again! 8.8/10
